The MariaDB Server is and always will be opensource.
I notice that mariadb.com talks about an Enterprise offering ("The new gold standard for database high availability" -- ?!?), which from my understanding has nothing to do with the MariaDB Server. Your feedback is important, and I tend to agree with you - it sure does sound confusing. I will pass this feedback on to the person responsible for this.
And with regards to your topic on download numbers -- note that they're hugely not a representation of our userbase. We cannot count users in distributions, large scale installs, etc. We also naturally see a huge discrepancy when it comes to opt-in statistics:
Anyway, thank you for your valuable feedback and lets all focus on making MariaDB better!

I myself am not quite sure where the .com / .org separation heads, but there is plenty of discussion and you can trust that I am on the side of the community and the .org world.
